2 Shot, 1 Dead, After Shooting at Bridgeport Barber Shop


   Two people were shot with one person being killed and another person injured after a shooting at a Bridgeport barber shop on Friday night.

Officers said shots were fired inside the Quick Stop Barber Shop on Pequonnock Street around 8 p.m.

According to investigators, a gunman entered the barber shop and fired at employees and patrons inside.

A 39-year-old employee was shot once in the neck and arm and fled from the building, police said. Officers said they later found him down the street and applied a tourniquet to his wound to stop severe bleeding.

The man was transported to St. Vincent's Medical Center where he was treated for a serious injury to his arm, police said. He is expected to survive.

A second man was found in the lot next to the barber shop. Police said the man, later identified as 40-year-old Jamain Allen, was shot multiple times and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives are processing a crime scene on Pequonnock Street. The public should expect road closures in the area for several hours as evidence is collected, police said.
